Nice atmosphere, but lackluster/country club food. Maybe we hit it on an off night.

Love this almost hidden gem. Lakefront dining basically. Never crowded. Always delicious. We had Sunday brunch and it was so yummy. Always great service. Staff is super friendly and accommodating.

We came to South Lake Tahoe for 1 week. We were not staying at The Landing, but we found Jimmy’s on our maps app. After having a wonderful breakfast, we decided to book again for dinner. Both times, the food and service were excellent and the views spectacular! Jimmy’s has a wonderful wine list and you have to try the “Figuratively Speaking” drink, it is one of the best cocktails I have had. We would definitely come again.

Cozy contemporary atmosphere on the lakeside. Excellent menu for brunch & dinner. Nice place to get away from the Casino & young apre ski crowd.

Jimmy's is always consistently good. Service varies, but they are super focused on uplifting this. I would always recommend them, as they have great food, super cocktails and wine list and friendly staff.

Hard hard pass. Worst service. No sense of urgency. Drinks were sitting at bar for ten minutes before we got up
To get them ourselves. Served pancakes without syrup? And fish tacos without sauce. No prebus. Asked for soft scramble, got hard omelette. Toast came literally untoasted. Asked for manager, he went to bar to talk with bartender while disregarding our needs. Hard pass. This was the Saturday morning shift on a holiday weekend. There was no wait, and we see why now. There are waits and lines everywhere else in town. Follow the crowd on this one and go somewhere else.

Pre dinner drinks at the bar were excellent, the bar tender Chelsea made first class cocktails and was very attentive and knowledgeable.

The only vegetarian option for my wife was a plate of vegetables, which was uninspiring and tasteless. My chicken was good but the accompaniments were mainly greasy croutons in an overly rich sauce.

Even if the food had been better everything was overpriced.

We definitely would not recommend anything other than the bar.

It is in a hidden quiet hotel, not in downtown or shopping mall. Quiet but lake front.
Food was authentic French homestyle and was delicious!

We went for brunch at 10:30. Great food a bit of a wait but worth it. Slow coffee service but great drinks from the bar and speedy service there.
Recommend it highly.

Very expensive restaurant which sets the expectation. Food was ok bur not value for money. Was seated in the bar area, noisy, cold and with a TV monitor above our heads. Expected more from a restaurant with this price level....

You need to control the salty level of the food.

The three meat pasta was very salty while the asparagus on the elk chop was bitter.

for a very busy Christmas week it took for ever to get our dinner we were told the kitchen was short staffed after waiting for a server to appear we had to get up and ask for one . the grilled vegetable was not really grilled it was warm at best with no grill marking anywhere, the hostess Sam was the only bright spot on the team this restaurant needs some professional assistance

We enjoyed Thanksgiving Dinner at Jimmy's. Three of the six individuals in our party are vegetarians and Jimmy's was very accommodating. Jimmy's offered their regular menu in addition to a traditional turkey dinner. One individual in our party had the turkey dinner and commented the turkey was perfect, mash potatoes and dressing was better than his mom's. The other two individuals had the scallops which they reported melted in their mouths. We brought our own wine to do a vertical tasting and our waiter-Kevin, handled everything from opening, to decanting, to pouring it, like a pro. I would ask for Kevin again on any occasion. Highly recommend Jimmy's to all friends and family.

Absolutely terrible. Terrible food, terrible service. I went there for dinner and had the baked brie and scallops, both were disgusting. Went there for breakfast and decided to sit outside, the server checked on me once to take my order and was never to be seen again. I had to flag down a different server to get my check. Would not recommend this place, would not ever return.

Short staffed. All dinner options offered zero average fare.
Could not get room service because only one person on staff. When dining inside the restaurant, it seemed like it took forever to order and get the bill.

Maybe end of season mood, maybe the wedding that was going on, but everything was just average. And that is not enough for a 5 star resort with prices like that.

Glad we found such a nice place to eat before seeing Duran Duran! We were seated at a beautiful table on the patio with Lake Tahoe right across the street! Gorgeous setting. It took a bit to get our cocktails but they were very worth the wait, excellent. Knowledgeable, calm server, skirt steak salad was wonderful, excellent Malbec, and the best, thick espresso ever. Loved it all and look forward to eating here again next time we visit. The man who was singing/playing keyboards was fantastic, he was making a lot of people happy!

Table we were seated at was the size of our plates. (Very small)
Steak was not a prime cut of meat. Very fatty. My wife's scallops were good. Not a 4 star restaurant, not even close.

The decor was chic and the view of the lake was nice. Brunch was good, decent sized portions. The setting was peaceful and relaxing until they cranked up the music, kind of killed the vibe. Service was friendly, but we had to ask for too many basics...coffee refill, butter and jelly for toast, change from paying in cash. If you’re looking for something a bit nicer than what you’ll find off the main drag in South Tahoe, this is a good option with a nice patio and lake view.

The location of this restaurant is great! Upon first impression, the restaurant was bustling but not crowded. The hostess was very polite and sat us in a great location. Water was brought over immediately, and by far the greatest part of the night was our waiter! I have never had such great service, nor such a genuinely kind person as a waiter. He made the experience for my girlfriend and I so wonderful. Made great recommendations and just felt like a friend who was serving us. The food was plated well and tasted perfectly! Girlfriend loved her wine choice, and the ambiance was terrific the entire night. I cannot say enough great things about our experience!

All amazing . However I was a bit disappointed in my meal. With the large number of people dining. The quality of food prep was rushed. This was not my first visit.
